Island Getaway

September 10, 2013

My friends and I spent Labor Day weekend on Fire Island. Our first night there, after a rousing game of Musical Chairs Flip Cup (You’ve never played Musical Chairs Flip Cup?! You’re doing it wrong.), we headed out to the bars. Our chosen bar’s dance floor was almost completely empty. But we were all riled […]

Jon, an online find, treated our first date like a game of 20 questions, complete with well-thought-out, conversation-starting brain teasers that he’d clearly memorized many dates ago. What he hadn’t practiced, however, was how to seamlessly slip them into conversation. As soon as there was the slightest lull, he’d hit me with, What were you […]

This story if from Dahlia, a 28-year-old actress in NYC, as told to Raz: I met Tom on OkCupid. We chatted on the phone, and he seemed really great. He had an interesting background—had been in the navy—and was about to graduate from the police academy. We made plans to go out, and he drove […]

I was excited to meet Brian, a find on OkCupid. He was a dentist (a real job!), went to an Ivy League school (a smarty!) and he actually called me on the phone to set up our date (a gentleman!). We planned to meet at Swine in the West Village, and on the day of our […]

Pulling A Fast One

You know a date is really bad when it’s so short that your bus ride home counts as a transfer from your bus ride there. I think my entire evening with Xavier lasted 45 minutes. It actually didn’t start out terribly, but I knew from the beginning that we were very different. He was from […]
